Worst Period Story: I should have changed my tampon!

Reader submission

During 6th period, I begin to feel some blood on my pants. But I thought I was probably imagining it, and just went on.

I had always used pads and hated them. So, I decided to use tampons. I wore a tampon to school and everything was fine for the first half of the day. During lunch, I had to go change my tampon. For some reason, I decided to not do it.

So, during 6th period, I begin to feel some blood on my pants. But I thought I was probably imagining it, and just went on.

As 6th period ended, I realized my period was actually leaking. Thank god I wore black jeans!

I tied a jacket around my waist, just in case. When I got to 7th period, I looked in my bag for a tampon or pad. I thought I had something, but NO! I didn’t have anything with me. I went to the bathroom to check and of course, there was blood all over my underwear. I did not know what to do.

I had P.E. next, and it just happened to be the day where I was going to be sprinting. I told a teacher and went to the office, so I could get a pad. But when I got there, a random guy was standing there talking to the lady. I didn’t want to ask her for a pad in front of the guy, so I just asked her if I could call my mom. I called my mom and got her to pick me up. I was probably the happiest person ever when she showed up.

My Period Diary: Heavy flow tampon rant!


Generally tampons are the answer to a more mess free and more comfortable period but it doesn’t mean all the problems of having a period are just POOF gone.

Heavy flows & Cheap tampons

So I had a heavy flow and I had purchased these Life brand tampons from Shoppers Drug Mart to try. They were on sale for… only $2.00! Yes a toonie!!!

I can’t pass on a deal like that so I just had to try them and what a better day to try them than on a heavy flow day.

But as I went to change my tampon throughout the day, ugh… I pulled out the tampon by the string and then PLOP a goop of period plopped on my hand.

UGH. yes a GOOP.. tampons only absorb liquid… period, blood, whatever you want to call it! But the lining that sheds during your period is not liquid – it is like soft tissue. Sometimes you will find them on your pad like little period whales.

This happened twice in a day. Sigh.

My period was comfortable but even after 13 years of having a period, I still find some parts of my period icky.

How was your last period?
